I am a great admirer of the visual storytelling of Ang Lee. The other day this quote "We need storytelling. otherwise, life just goes on and on, like the number Pi." popped up on the interwebs. Story not only is the heart and soul of a film, it is the motivation, the driving force to making one. It goes into every aspect of film making, character development, visual narration...we cannot get reminded often enough. Also, it's a huge part of what makes us human.
